Tehillim One Hundred: Faith

Wow. Today I’m reaching 100 psalms. I’m honestly overwhelmed by that number. When I began this book of Tanakh, I was beyond intimidated by the number of chapters in this particular book. 150 seemed like an overwhelming number, lasting multiple months more than any previous book, and with no overarching storyline to keep things moving along. And now, I’m more than halfway done, and reaching this major round number emphasizes that for me. After today we have 50 chapters left, which means there are still over two months to go in psalms, but it’s starting to feel like the end is in sight.

“For the Lord is good; His kindness is forever, and until generation after generation is His faith (Psalms 100:5).” I love that this verse emphasizes God’s faith, not just our faith in Him. There’s a comfort in knowing that God believes in us as much as we’re supposed to believe in Him. It’s a mutual relationship, which makes it all that much stronger. I personally tend to thrive the most when I know that someone believes in me and is invested in my success. So today my goal is to hold that feeling close by, that no matter what I’m doing, someone has faith in me and my actions.
